England tour of West Indies: END OF AN ERA! 1177 wickets veterans James Anderson, Stuart Broad set to be dropped- check why?

England have left out their most storied bowlers James Anderson and Stuart Broad out of their squad for the tour of West Indies. With the majority of the backroom staff sacked after England’s 4-0 loss against Australia, an interim panel made up of Andrew Strauss, interim head coach Paul Collingwood and Head Scout James Taylor will be making decisions in regards with the touring party.

With both Anderson and Broad in the final days of their career, the trio have decided to swing the axe and push the team in a new direction in a similar manner to England’s white-ball revolution after their 2015 World Cup disaster. In addition to Broad and Anderson, Jos Buttler has also been axed from the squad as England eye a red-ball rejig. Last week, England dispensed of the services of Managing Director Ashley Giles, Head Coach and Selector Chris Silverwood and Assistant Coach Graham Thorpe.

In Buttler’s absence, Ben Foakes has received a recall while Matthew Fisher, Alex Lees and Matthew Parkinson are new additions to the squad. The pace bowling department will be headed by Mark Wood, Ollie Robinson and Chris Woakes.
